Change Your Mind
How many times have you heard a child make the excuse “I can’t help it?” How many times have you said this to yourself as an excuse for thoughts and behaviors? Do you know that it is a lie?
The truth is that you can overcome with the help of God. He gave you His Holy Spirit to be your Helper - always with you and always ready. How many times do we ask for His wisdom and help when we’re thinking the wrong way or getting ready to do something we KNOW we shouldn’t. It might not even be an actual transgression, but it’s something that is holding you back from spiritual growth.
“Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.” Romans 12:2 NLT
